Mixed Media Art - 10 weeks

Mixed Media Art - 10 weeks


In this art class, children get to work with a variety of art tools and materials, and develop an understanding of the fundamentals of art, including form, colour, and proportions.

This class loosely alternates between more creativity-focused projects and more technique-focused projects. Students will be shown how to work with the materials through a teacher's demo, and then they can put their own individual spin on the project. Students are encouraged to develop confidence and independence in their art-making.

Mixed media means projects will cover a variety of materials, including drawing and painting, sculpture, and collage.
